What I did yesterday....



I could be the last person on the planet, but I finally saw Shaun of the Dead. In fact, I think I watched it the better part of three times yesterday (was on Comedy Central). Shaun (Simon Pegg) could very well be my new celeb-crush (along with a new'ish fixation on Ed Norton). Fun movie.

Other than that, didn't do a whole lot yesterday except read a book for Adolescent Lit. The book: Song of the Magdalene, by Donna Jo Napoli. I was iffy about it at first, but in the end I liked it. Kinda reminded me of The Red Tent--Biblical historical fiction and all.

Gotta go teach. I hope you all had a nice pre-Halloween weekend.

The proposal still isn't done. It hates me.

Listening: "Voice Inside My Head"...Dixie Chicks

  3. Andi,
    I, too, was just introduced to this movie not too long ago and I loved it! I am glad you enjoyed it...
    And I have been in love with Ed Norton ever since I saw "American History X"...great actor and not too bad on the eyes either :0)

  4. You know, everytime someone writes a post that says "I must be the last person in the world to ever" it is inevitable that I have never.

    Never seen Shaun of the Dead!

  8. Cold, it really is. I freakin' loved it and could watch it over and over (as evidenced by the multiple looks this weekend). Your ability to quote astounds me!

    Amanda, isn't it though? I *heart* it.

    Kim, I haven't seen American History X yet, but all the boys I work with love it. I feel sure I would love it for a completely different reason, though! lol

    LOL, Marg! The same thing usually happens to me. Definitely see Shaun of the Dead--fabulous zombie movie spoof.

    Os, you definitely need to watch it. I think you'd like it. And the pic is there for ya. Enjoy!

    X, I'm tryin' my best. It's much better since I ditched the old draft and started over.

    E., I liked it in the end. It reminded me of The Red Tent which I read several years ago and liked. While it was a 5-star read, bit was ok. I wanna read The New York Trilogy and that's really it right now!

  10. i LOVE LOVE LOVE Shaun of the Dead. I think I wasn't expecting to love it that much that when I did see it I was just so pleasently surprised. Glad you liked it too. I had no doubt that you wouldn't!
